Video shows woman firing several shots at home intruders


Highlights

A Gwinnett homeowner fired bullets at at armed intruders.

Just minutes into a home invasion, a Gwinnett home owner dashed out of her room, fired several shots at armed intruders and killed one of them, video released Thursday showed.

Surveillance footage released by the Gwinnett County Police Department shows the intruders busting through the door and rummaging the house in the Sept. 16 incident.

Not long after they’d searched the home, the owner comes out her room and fires several shots at the armed suspects before two of them escape.

A third intruder, Antonio Leeks, 28, of Atlanta, was shot and killed in the home invasion.

Police are still looking for the two remaining men believed to be involved.

Descriptions of the alleged intruders were released Wednesday.
